We can’t blame wildfires on global warming–Booker

Booker has a nice concise piece on the latest fires in California:


We can’t blame wildfires on global warming


Despite the best efforts of governor Jerry Brown of California, and a gaggle of Hollywood celebrities claiming that the state’s disastrous wildfires were caused by climate change, the facts, as usual, show otherwise.

Experts have pointed out that the number of homes the western US built in places at risk of fire has risen from 6,700 in 1940 to 6.7 million today. Millions more homes have been built in fire-vulnerable areas than were there in the days when people were more sensible about where they chose to live.

In addition, new “green” regulations have outlawed the creation of firebreaks, removing underbrush and all the old management practices designed to stop fires spreading. A graph from the neighbouring Oregon fire department shows that there has been no overall upward trend in forest fires, which reached their peak back in the Thirties, then fell dramatically. Only this year, as in California, have they again risen to record levels.

In London, meanwhile, a bunch of fanatical greenies can close Thames bridges to traffic to protest against climate change, while all over France traffic is brought to a halt by drivers angrily protesting against President Macron’s new “carbon taxes”. Whatever we like to think, the Rosbifs are not always more sensible than our French neighbours.

There’s also a very good and detailed piece by Dellers:

    Can anyone think of when the collective global human reasoning took such a downward trajectory as it has over the last 2 decades.

    I mean sure there’s always been local populations here and there through time bucking the trend (although in light of our present experience those villages or hamlets that have voted sheep, chickens, pigs, ducks or even yeast as a leaders really out not be included). I mean collectively, an overall decline in the sum of human intelligence?

    I suspect that if you put these ‘greens’ in a room alongside those that believe aliens have flown untold light years for the sole purpose of examining their anuses they would shine out as the most rational.

    Nicely covered. Those who built and looked to government to protect them were also the ones who voted for a government to pay no attention to reality or use common sense.

      Very nicely, precisely put and well said.
